Red Hat OpenShift on VMware

Red Hat named a Leader in the 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™

Red Hat was positioned highest for ability to execute and furthest for completeness of vision in the Gartner 2023 Magic Quadrant for Container Management.

As software developer demands conform to experiences delivered by the cloud, IT operations teams are challenged to best deliver the speed, agility, portability, and scale to satisfy developer needs, without compromising the security features and visibility required by IT operations. While customers have the flexibility to run containers in the cloud, or on bare metal on-premises, most on-premises infrastructure is virtualized. Often the easiest and most efficient way to get started with containers today is to run containers on virtual machines. Roughly 75% of containers run on-premises are on virtual machines today.  

Red Hat OpenShift and VMware vSphere 6 and 7 are a great combination for running an enterprise container platform on a virtual infrastructure. For the last several years our joint customers have successfully deployed Red Hat OpenShift on VMware for their production-ready applications.

OpenShift 4 Full Stack Automation with VMware vSphere

Containers break applications into discrete functions to improve agility in development. Kubernetes was developed to automate the deployment, scaling and management of containers. Built and deployed by one of the largest open source communities, Kubernetes is made up of over 1,700 contributors. Kubernetes is at the heart of Red Hat OpenShift.
